3.0 Opportunities, Risks, Critical Success Factors, Assumptions 3.1 Project Benefits/Merits [Discuss briefly the primary potential benefits of this project to the   customer—look for selling points that you will want to emphasize in   the Proposal.] There are many reasons why it is advantageous for a company to use enterprise information systems. EISs improve information access, and increase the accuracy and consistency of data. EISs also improve employee productivity and cut down on the amount of paper companies’ use. The systems allow business partners and suppliers to communicate quickly, thus cutting down on the time it takes to process orders and get products to customers. With the construction project control, EIS helps the project billing and project costing is integrated in real time, which allows the main office to keep track of projects. ERP also automates the change order management which is a seriously time consuming activity during project execution. With the workforce management, EIS handles employee and payroll related activities of the construction firm. Complete employee database is maintained including contact information, salary details, attendance, performance evaluation and promotion of all employees. Also, this function is integrated with the knowledge management system to optimally utilize the expertise of all employees within the firm. With the finance and accounting, EIS streamlines financial operations of the enterprise as well as the projects, collects financial data from all departments, and generates all financial reports, such as balance sheets, general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and quarterly financial statements.
